Re: [Linux-cluster] ext3 filesystem

Is it possible to have an ext3 filesystem mixed with the gfs filesystems on my SAN that can be mounted by all nodes?
Hi David,

As long as the ext3 file system is mounted read only by all but one node, you should be able to do this. However, if you need read/write capabilities on both file systems on the SAN, then ext3 will just get you in trouble. Since ext3 isn't cluster aware, the nodes will walk all over each other's data.
That's what GFS was designed to prevent.
